Orby Chase – Derby Girl

Alt-rock has come a long way from its underground roots and is now standing steadfastly in the light. Belfast’s Orby Chase is a prime example of this new wave of artists.

This generation offers tighter playing, more mature riffs and changes, still paying homage to roots in grunge. Think Catfish & The Bottlemen, or Cage the Elephant.


Orby Chase’s single, Derby Girl is a sexy melody with impressive drumming and finely-drawn guitar changes. Expertly arranged and mixed, this is a class single. With their EP release coming soon I look forward to hearing what else Orby Chase may have up their sleeves. I’d keep my eye [and ears] on this band. Can’t wait to see what they get up to next.
